    On Friday 30 July 1915, three trees were planted at the Mount Pleasant School by “Mr. Thomson, Mr. Tamblyn (head teacher), and Miss Stibbles (assistant teacher), in memory of two old scholars—Privates A. H. Bax and E. H. Jenzen—and General Birdwood, who were killed with the Australians on the Gallipoli Peninsula”. The next day nine trees were planted by the school children at the showground honouring the “great part Australia’s sons have taken in the present great struggle”.
